Your grandparents used steel soap shakers with great effectiveness, getting all their dishes snappy clean. In fact, children fought over being allowed to soap up the water.
Well, they are back and with an ecological impact saving vengeance.
Simply pop in a soap bar of your choice and shake vigorously under hot water to get your sink nice and bubbly using this plastic free alternative.
Steel soap shaker baskets remove the need to buy dishwashing liquid or liquid refills (that usually contain more waste than the original bottle, and often cost more...? Go figure?).
We have used good old Sunlight Soap which you may remember from next to the laundry sink in many kiwi homes... (showing age ha)! It costs about $4 for a pack of 4, comes in a cardboard box and is still made with the original formula from 1884.
More dollars in your pocket as sunlight soap costs $4 for 4 bars and the bars last longer than most liquid detergent.
Easily control the amount of soapy water – it’s all too easy to over squeeze more liquid detergent than you need
Kids enjoy soaping up the water – it’s fun – easier to get them involved.
Surprisingly easy to create detergent – just shake and run under hot tap or shake in hot water.
Nothing is left over – no plastic bottle to get rid of.
Dishwashing detergents can contain a myriad of chemicals. Surfactants, stability and dispensing aids, fragrances and colors, mildness additives, preservatives and antibacterial agents are sometimes added. In some cases these might be naturally occurring substances, but often they won’t. Some will be toxic to aquatic organisms and likely won’t be filtered out at water treatment facilities.https://www.greenlivingtips.com/articles/dishwashing-detergent-environmental-impact.html
Dishwashing detergents contain phosphate – it’s a naturally occurring substance, but if too much of it gets into waterways, algae and phytoplankton feed on it and reproduce in massive numbers; causing an algal bloom.
More than 60 million plastic bottles end up in landfills and incinerators every day – a total of about 22 billion last year
